Re: Incendiary Abe Lyman

by Andrew J. Sammut

Though it was recorded years later, I wonder the same thing about the Lyman band's recording of "Shake That Thing" from 1926. The whole band struts to a rhythmic feel that must have been incredible to dance to (with Jake Garcia's slap bass beautifully recorded) and Slim Martin turns his comic vocal style into a hot solo that makes me think he was listening to some Kid Ory. For me, this record is up there with Goldkette's "My Pretty Girl" and Keppard with Doc Cooke on the Columbia "Here Comes The Hot Tamale Man."
